Low cars....

I had my baby up on the hoist the other day, and I took a few pics of some of the damage that is done when you have a low car.
(and I only got the "low" king springs... not the super lows!!)

:dead: :dead: :dead:

This is a pic of what happens to the cats!!.

Might go faster down the 1/4 mile now kelli, less weight. I can only imagine how much fun it is with a full tank of fuel and a couple of passengers.!! Do the tyres rub at all over big bumps??

Oooooh, Ouch

Bugger, I know what you mean !!!!!
The funny thing is that probably happened on Parra road, or some back street with those ridiculous steep speed humps !!!!
(The ones that are supposed to MAKE you slow down to a crawl, but the only people that slow down for them are enthusiasts like yourself, that take care of their pride and joy !!!!)

Makes you wonder where our road tax dollars are going !!!!!

Mmmmmmm. I have seen worse, which just goes to prove that you are looking after the Beast !!!!

Hi Sam,

The tailshaft thing is what happens when you have people in the back seat whilst driving on victorian roads!!!

The rest of the damage is from driveways mostly. And that includes workshop driveways!!

At my local mechanic - there is 3 bays.... I can only get my car into one of them!! on the other 2 I will bottom out, and see saw!!
